LOGGIA - Another week, another set of posters; however, this set of posters has proven to be even more passive-aggressive than last week.
“All Anti-Fascists are Coddled Hippies,” one poster with a picture of a crossed-out hippie sits right above the “We Hate Puppies” club sign. Both posters are a symbol of the changing times as students must decide.
“We put our free cupcake sign up at 7:00 AM other day,” said Cady Kemer ‘20. “By the end of breakfast, it was covered by posters condemning the new Babies Are Just Smaller People Club It’s wild.”
“It’s been difficult. I mean, the other day, I had to spend all night ripping down the anti-fascist posters in the south loggia. I didn’t get to sleep until 5 AM,” Chad Randor ‘19 explained. “Some would say that I’m silencing voices but if you look at it from my perspective, I’m simply engaging in open and honest dialogue.”
The current Young Democrats Association’s current poster states “Don’t be a Republican.” Meanwhile, the new Young Republicans Association’s new poster shows an elephant crushing a donkey with the caption “We’ll take your asses down.”
“Oh that one? It’s artistic,” Greg Haynes ‘17 explained as he gestured at the poster. “I mean, everyone likes elephants, right? They’re endangered you know.”
Other warring posters include the Track team’s “Watch Us Run” poster and the Diving team’s “We Jump Off High Bouncy Things Into Water!” poster. The Track team’s posters are purple and contain fun facts about its various members, such as “Peter Thrunk once wrestled an alligator” and “Jessica Porter can fit in her mouth.” Meanwhile, the Diving team’s posters say “DIVES are the besT!”
“Oh that?” Peter Thrunk ‘20 shook his head. “Nah, it was just a crocodile. At this point, we’re just trying to compete for space with all these other posters by getting a little edgier.”
Some students are taking this poster war particularly hard. “How am I supposed to feel connected to the student body if we’re in an era of Fake Postering?” said Jenella Warne ‘20. “I just want to know when the Introverts Club meets!”
